I am new to Arkham Horror, currently playing my first game with four players and at the end of turn one I have a question that I am not sure of based on conflicting interpretations of the rule.
For our preliminary mythos card we had to open a gate at the woods which all worked fine. Then at the end of turn one, we drew a new mythos card and again we were instructed to open a gate at the woods. So i referred to the instruction booklet which tells me that you have to have a monster surge and add monsters to the open gates equal to the amount of gates open or the number of players, whichever is higher.
So being that we only have one gate open and a monster is already on it and yet to move (but about to) from the preliminary turn, does that mean that we have to place four monsters on the woods open gate? Or do you place a combination of monsters on the gate and outskirts? If so, how does that divide up?
Thanks for the help guys. Sorry if this is a topic already addressed on here but as I said, this is my first game, am loving it and want to make sure the game is played the correct way.
Looking forward to your help.
